Easter Seals – 63rd Annual Rogers Conn Smythe Sports Celebrity Dinner

 

The 63rd Annual Rogers Conn Smythe Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction took place on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 at the Toronto’s famous Royal York Hotel. They had a list of solid 2014 Celebrity Guests who gave their valuable time and gave back to the communities in support of this special charitable event. In fact, some of these celebrities such as all-time Blue Jays great, Carlos Delgado, specifically flew in Toronto so he could be part of this special occasion. The list of celebrity guests include Carlos Delgado (Baseball Player), Geraldine Heaney (Hockey Player), James Hinchcliffe (Indy Car Race Car Driver), Perdita Felicien (Hurdler), Dave Stewart (Baseball Player), Scott Milanovich (CFL Coach), Gary Roberts (Hockey Player), Matt Hughes (Martial Artist), Stefan Charles (NFL Player), and Natalie Spooner (Female Gold Olympian). This year’s dinner host was Gerry Dee!

Special thanks to the Easter Seals Committee for the invitation and our crew and I attended the media conference where I got to interview some of these celebrities as well as the Easter Seals Ambassadors about being part of this great charitable organizations and the meaning of giving back and in support of the youth and young adults in Ontario with a physical disability.

Stay tuned for my later publications on the interviews I had with some of these celebrities!

Here are the photos we took at the Media Conference and photos of my interviews with these celebrities:

Fashion at the Sochi Opening Ceremony

New York Fashion Week is happening this week and next week. And….Sochi Winter Olympics is taking off as well. The opening ceremony just happened today in Russia and all countries wear various winter outfits to showcase their country colours, traditions and their historical heritage. It’s a great event to check out what each country has in store regarding their fashion.

Here are some of my choices for the best fashion at the 2014 Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony. I would like to dissect them into a few categories: 1) Best Fashion; 2) Not necessary stylish or fashionable but definitely makes a statement by standing out from the crowd & 3) Epic Fail:

Category A:) Best Fashion

1) Canada

Love the red pea-coat!

2) France

3) Netherland

Category B:) Not Necessary the best fashion but surely stands out and make a statement

1) USA

I don’t really like the design, it’s too busy and just feels like all logos are being brought by sponsors. Too many stars make me dizzy. However, I do like the material and the cardigan design. Honestly, if the design is more simple and less logos and less stars, I would really love this outfit.

2) Germany

What was the German thinking? These colours don’t reflect them but it does stand out.

Image

3) Ukraine

I like the abstract patterns on the jacket.

Category C: Epic Fail (simply epic fail)

1) Ireland

They look like they are military. With all the terrorist threats against the Sochi Olympics, these are the last uniforms we want to see at a joyful game.

2) Bermuda

No excuse, it’s winter Olympics! Short pants? If some of these athletes really competing the winter sports with these short pants, I will let it slide, but no winter sports will allow you to wear short pants. Put it back in the closet and wait for the next Summer Olympics.
